#AWSM2021 canceled for Dallas, moves to virtual setting

Post by:
AWSM Board

The Association for Women in Sports Media has canceled its 2021 convention, scheduled to open June 3 at the Fairmont Dallas, out of an abundance of caution due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The safety of our members and attendees is our top priority, which is why AWSM is moving from an in-person setting to a virtual conference this summer. More details will be released at a later date.

AWSM will be returning to the Mile High City for the organization’s 2022 convention – set for August 4-7 – at The Curtis hotel. Denver was selected by AWSM because of its strong sports market, affordability, favorable airport and the success of past events – including the organization’s 2015 convention. Other western cities under consideration included Los Angeles and Portland.

Here are the best AWSM leaders to contact about the convention:
